Although we didn’t get a no-hitter, it was about as close as you can get. Hiroki Kuroda silenced the Rangers’ bats on Tuesday to the tune of a two-hit, complete-game shutout. It was the closest I’ve ever been to witnessing a no-no in person, and also the only complete game I’ve ever attended (I think).
Enjoy these pictures from the latest HIROK Day:
The man, the myth, the HIROK:
The Good Guys:
~90-year-old lady sitting next to me putting on make-up. “I once gave a hand job to Charlie Chaplin,” she didn’t say.
Good eye, Jeet:
Casey McGehee, who went 2-for-4:

It just wasn’t meant to be, Hiroki:
The Bad Guys:
This guy committed a double foul. 1) He left the sticker on his hat 2) That’s essentially a Girardi jersey because of the 2009 World Series patch. However, I must give him props for not having a name on the back.
Swish Dog after his go-ahead homer in the seventh. I’m not going to say I called it, but I’m also not not saying that.
